The Day After Thanksgiving 2012

I hope everyone had a fulfilling (pardon the pun) Thanksgiving holiday and if you are so inclined, find all the bargains you need today, Black Friday. Me? I'm staying as far away from stores as possible.

Stories will return to The Elder Storytelling Place on Monday 26 November

The Small Business Administration is encouraging us to 'shop small' by shopping at small businesses in our communities. Great idea.

I have not been shopping on Black Friday for about 3-4 years now and am happy to have a good reason to stay away from the stores. I too try to support more small, local independent businesses, which I plan to do next Thursday when I have the opportunity.

If you have ever worked retail on Black Friday (even before it was simply called "The day after Thanksgiving", you will not be tempted to shop on that day ever again.

Correction...that was supposed to read "Even WHEN it was simply called 'The day after Thanksgiving'....
